Welcome to Ahern's Dental Practice. We are situated on School Road in Killorglin in county Kerry. At Ahern's Dental we promise a warm and friendly welcome along with the highest standards in dental care.

Family Friendly

We are family friendly with a children play area to entertain our younger patients. We welcome private, medical cards and PRSI qualified patients.

Medical card holders

Adults (over 16 years of age) who have a valid medical card can access a range of dental services and treatments under the Dental Treatment Service Scheme.

All medical card holders are entitled to specific dental treatments e.g., a dental examination, two fillings in each calendar year, extractions as necessary.

Some treatments such as the provision of dentures require the approval of the HSE before the dentist can proceed and in this case, the dentist applies directly to the HSE.

Additional treatments for example, teeth cleaning are available to those persons with specific medical conditions and we will be able to advise you of your entitlement if this is the case. The HSE dental section may require written documentation outlining your medical condition and/or medications from your G.P. or other relevant medical person.


Persons who have sufficient PRSI contributions are entitled to an annual check up free of charge. Scale and polish is subsidised and prices vary from free to a maximum charge of €15. Please contact the surgery for further details.
